I embedded the VMWare.Script in its own (beta) project and stored it on the nativeEx server.

To get it:
  • Create an empty folder, named on your choice
  • Copy WinBuilder 072 or 072a into it
  • Start WinBuilder and go to the Download tab
  • With WB 072 create the server nativeex.boot-land.net, with 072a it is already included
  • Unselect all servers besides nativeex.boot-land.net
  • Choose download type 'Beta'
  • Unselect all projects besides nativeEx_moa-lite
  • Do the download
First run:
  • Run the project
  • In the path wizzard, define your source CD. This must be W2003
  • Continue
    The project now will download the 'normal' nativeEx scripts and programs and add them to the project.
  • As the message box tells, exit and restart WinBuilder
  • Navigate to VMWare player and extract the needed files from the Player setup
Normal run:
  • Run the project
This will finally end in VirtualBox running the PE. If you do not have VirtualBox installed, select qEmu as emulator.

Peter

EDIT:
In MOA\vmstart.cmd you must adjust the localgroup 'administrators' to the language of your source CD.
Delivered is German.
Of course, that is beta, in the final version this will be 'native'

Quick test

You need to agree to the VMmanager ULA so it can process the script
The user needs to know that they need to have downloaded the "VMware-player-2.0.1-55017.exe" which around 172MB.
In the Finish Options why not have the Option to Run final ISo in VMware.

All the time I have at the moment. Have not built it yet. Will try latter tonight.

Thanks! I'll add

The emulator test in this case can only check whether the ISO boots. Running VMWAre Player in an emulator is not (yet) possible.
Real debug / use must be made with burned CD.
Therefore I only added these two popular emulators; I also did not include M$ VirtualPC.

Delivered is German.
Of course, that is beta, in the final version this will be 'native'

[*]You will have to Navigate to the VMWare player Script, In Winbuilders "Scripts" Tab, and extract the needed files from the Player setup VMware-player-2.0.1-55017.exe


Lets get Started:

In the "Download Tab" use the "Add New Web Server" button to add the " nativeex.boot-land.net " server, with 072a the server should already be listed in the "Available Web Server" list.

QUOTE

[*]Unselect all servers besides nativeex.boot-land.net

[*]Unselect all projects besides nativeEx_moa-lite, you can keep the Tools selected

QUOTE
[*]Choose download type 'Beta'

[*]Choose download type 'Beta' , Normally its set as "Recommended"

QUOTE

[*]Do the download

Ok!

Important:

Suggestion: Include someway to make sure that Vmware Player is installed before building project even though you have supposvily extracted the contents of Vmware Player. Because I built the project without installing, or extracting the Vmware Player. Because earlier in the morning when I downloaded the Project and hit the extract button I had to hit the Cancel button to cancel the Extraction of the Vmware Player because I had to leave. I came back later that night and ran the project without a warning that I did not have Vmware Player Extracted.


QUOTE
[*]Run the project

ok!


QUOTE
This will finally end in VirtualBox running the PE.
If you do not have VirtualBox installed, select qEmu as emulator.

Qemu should be the default Emu, Since some will not have VB installed.





Testing

Thanks, TheHive cheers.gif

That shows that with this new way of download at least technical the project can become runnable.

I'm going to bring your additional hints into the project.

Attached File  log.rar ( 26.46K ) Number of downloads: 109


When I first ran it and I did not have Vmware Extracted I did not get that error from the build.
i was able to boot from Ram.

It seemed that when I extracted the VM Player contents and then build the build I get this error in the Final stage of building the SDI.

No errors when processing the VmPlayere Script.

The log does give a hint on any troubles with drive Z:

Are you eventually running out of hdd space?

I'll try to build like you did
  • w/o VMware player
  • extract player
  • build again
